In Symbian world of signed software:

I don't think you need TCB or AllFiles capabilities. You can sign software with most caps for free (as a freeware).

If you need advanced capabilities, the software must be tested for any bugs in the testhouse (unless the developer has an agreement).

The good thing is that most people are not able to sign pirated software which requires advanced capabilities with developer certificates - at least getting the dev cert with e.g. MultimediaDD or DRM is much harder.

If need some symbian- or manufacturer-approved capability and have good business reasons for it you're likely to get it.
